Employee Identification Number- The Requirement

Each time you are filing form 2290 online, there are few mandatory details to be mentioned and in the list, EIN is the most important.

What is an EIN?

EIN is one such identification number for IRS to recognize you. It is important as it protects the system and the privacy setting. The combination of the EIN and the name of the taxpayer are revised into unique identifier for each taxpayer. If the unique identification number does not match IRS records, your return would be rejected. So ensure you are keying the right number/ character while filing form 2290.

If you don’t remember your EIN while filing your return or if you have accidently misplaced it, reach IRS at 1-866-699-4096 and they would look into it for you.
